Welcome!  The Mid-Shore Community Foundation is committed to helping local students pursue post-secondary education.  Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we have one of the largest scholarship programs in the region.  The Foundation administers a pooled scholarship program, which allows students to apply for multiple scholarships by completing one online application.  The Foundation administers the application, selection and award process for those scholarships.  To apply, visit and complete the online application. The system allows you to create a login to access the application, which you can edit and save until you are ready to submit.  Our scholarships support Caroline, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s and Talbot County traditional students – dependent students going directly from high school to full-time degree and certificate programs – and nontraditional students – independent adult students continuing their education through accredited seminars, workshops, courses, customized trainings.  Scholarships are awarded almost exclusively to students who demonstrate financial need, and based on other criteria established by the donor.  Applicants should review the description of each scholarship to determine their eligibility.  The application period opens on December 1 and closes at midnight on February 14th.  For additional information about the Mid-Shore Community Foundation’s scholarship program, contact Megan Cook at or 410-820-8175 x104.
